Paul Rudd on the Writing Process of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Ant-Man and the Wasp marks the 20th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for much of the last decade, the blockbuster saga has been a box office-conquering behemoth - a series of nested franchises in constant concentric motion, with an increasingly unwieldy narrative ambition to match its growing financial stakes. But based on this opening night take, it looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp is going to beat that number.

Avengers: Infinity War, of course, ends with Thanos collecting all of the Infinity Stones and initiating the Snap - turning half of humanity to dust.

Meanwhile, Scott is now stuck in the quantum realm until Feige only knows when. and if we've learned anything from Janet, it's that staying down there can do weird things to a person.

"In terms of how that plays into "Captain Marvel" and 'Avengers 4, ' I can't say anything", Reed said. Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the original Wasp and Hank's wife, was trapped in the Quantum Realm while on a mission 30 years ago.

The Quantum Realm, also called the Microverse in the comics, is where Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), goes when he shrinks down to a subatomic level.

Ronaldo's World Cup began in flawless fashion, with a hat-trick against Spain , but he struggled to make an impact against Uruguay.

According to leaked set photos from Avengers 4 and popular theories, it's possible that there will be some time-trickery going on in the highly anticipated sequel. Or maybe he even learns about Thanos and attempts to warn the Avengers of his presence early on in the MCU's running timeline?

The introduction of Ant-Man into Marvel's Cinematic Universe back in 2016 also served as an introduction to the mysterious and limitless "Quantum Realm". Jude Law will be portraying Mar-Vell, an alien with special abilities and a member of the Kree empire, which we've previously glimpsed in the MCU (Ronan from Guardians of the Galaxy).

While any temporal journeying could be the result of the Time Stone now in possession of Thanos, it could also come from Ant-Man's inter-dimensional travels in the Quantum Realm that leads into a time vortex.

"Seriously, don't joke around, bring me up!" yells Scott, still in the quantum realm.

The second post-credits scene, featuring a giant ant playing the drums, manages to be both amusing and chilling, before the movie ends with a reassuring statement - "Ant-Man and The Wasp will return" - that quickly turns ominous when a question mark appears at the end, rendering that observation a little less certain.
